Derek Thomas "Architecture and the Urban Environment: A Vision for the New Age"
Architectural Press | ISBN: 0750654627 | June 2002 | PDF | 223 pages | 24 Mb
This well illustrated text forms a critical appraisal of the place and direction of architecture and urban design in a new world order at the start of the 21st century. The book defines architectural and environmental goals for the New Age by analysing recent contemporary work for its responsiveness to important social and environmental issues and comparing it to successful precedents in architecture. It argues that this new sustainable approach to architecture should be recognised as a new development of mainstream architectural history.
Some of the highlighted features of this book :
• Contains 240 images of the world's most important buildings that have had an impact on architectural and urban design in the last decade.
• Discover the evolution of design through best practice across four continents in this accessible narrative.
• Explore shifting social, environmental, technological, economic and political issues and their relation to the role of architects, designers and developers in the new millennium.
